Kaka Revival is an artwork that celebrates the growing population of the Kaka in the Wellington region. The artwork is based on a photograph Hannah took at Zealandia Ecosanctuary in Karori, Wellington. The initial introduction was with 14 birds to Zealandia in 2002. By the end of the 2018/2019 season, over 1,000 Kaka have been banded by their very successful breeding program. You can now see Kaka around the greater Wellington region; they have even been seen down and around Parliament! Like their cousin the Kea, Kaka are considered to be on the world’s most intelligent birds. Limited edition prints of this artwork have been used to help raise money for Zealandia.

Original Artwork

Paper Size - A3
Outer frame dimensions - 46cm x 59cm x 3cm
Limited edition prints are available here.

Original A3 size artwork drawn in fine tip Staedtler pen on Italian hot-pressed Fabriano paper.

The artwork has been float mounted with protective UV70 glass by Warren and Kathy at Picture Perfect, professional framing in Waikanae.

This artwork is a pair of curious Stitchbird (Hihi) sitting in one of their favourite trees, the Karamu. The Maori bird name Hihi also translates to ‘ray of sun’, which is a nice reflection to the beautiful, bright yellow chest of the male bird (below). Hannah took both of the reference photos on the ‘lake track’ at Zealandia Ecosanctuary, where the population has been steadily growing. This special bird was both poorly known and rare until the 1990s, as the only surviving population was found on Little Barrier Island. With thanks to the Department of Conservation and other organisations this bird has been spread to different predator free translocation sites where they can recover.

The elegant White-faced Heron was introduced in the 1940s and is now the most common Heron throughout New Zealand. They are spotted in almost any aquatic habitat foraging for food in estuary mudflats, rivers, rocky shores and farm ponds. They are seen roosting in the high treetops of large macrocarpa and pine trees.  This artwork took over a month’s time to draw and was inspired by the many White-Faced Herons that live on the Waikanae River near my home studio.
